An Old Brand Falls
Very sad news that General Motors is dropping the Pontiac brand, due to falling sales. Pontiac was one of GM's oldest brands (1926), and was famous for such models as the Grand Prix, Bonneville, GTO and the Firebird. A white '70 Firebird Esprit was one Hackwhacker's first wheels, and the brand has been part of the family for decades, including a Pontiac dealership. It's too bad they can't survive on the good memories of their customers.
